“Our beautiful new school is not quite ready for all of us yet so unfortunately we have to postpone the Orientation and Chromebook Rollout Sessions scheduled for August 11th and August 16th. We are rescheduling both events to Wednesday, August 24th and Thursday, August 25th,” Higgins Principal Todd Bucey announced. “There will be two sessions each day; one from 2PM to 4PM and one from 6PM to 8PM. Those of you that have already signed up for a session will AUTOMATICALLY be rescheduled to the event that most closely mirrors your original time. You will receive an email informing you of your new date and time. If that time or day does not work for you, you may reschedule right on Eventbrite. If you have not yet signed up, spaces are still available for all sessions. Links to sign up and for Chromebook registration (a HUGE timesaver for you at Orientation) can be found at bit.ly/newhiggins, on the Higgins homepage or by clicking on the headline above.
